Practice Practicality. These next few tips are often overlooked but are very important. Without vacuuming, a little otherwise harmless dirt or dust can get mashed into the carpet and seriously compromise its integrity. This doesn't have to be done every day but once a week will keep your carpet cleaner and healthier. Spreading some baking soda a little before each vacuuming is also a good idea. Baking soda absorbs odors and doesn't just mask it like many carpet cleaners. These tips will not only make your carpet look much cleaner, it will bring it back to life and make it last much longer. They are easy to use and simple to try and can have immediate, noticeable impact. Implement these tips today to keep your carpet cleaner this summer!
Other ways to clean carpet. If you have a spill on your carpet, you should try and get the spill up as fast as possible. The faster you get the spill up, the less likely chance of having a stain. When you have a stain, never use an iron or a hair dryer to dry a carpet stain, doing this will only seal the stain permanently on your rug. If you notice a spill or make one, quickly grab a super absorbent cloth such as a chamois, shammy, or towel. When you are trying to absorb the spill don't press very hard the first time because you might press the spill further down into the pad. Lightly lay the super absorbent cloth on the spill and let it soak up what it can the first time. The second time you come back to the spill, try and use a cleaning agent along with the super absorbent chamois or cloth. If you need to use a cleaning agent or liquid, make sure to read the label and follow the directions. If the spill is not completely up after the second time, use a steam cleaner on it. No matter how careful you are, chances are that you will have a spill one day on your carpet. When this happens, don't panic. Just follow the above steps to help you get the spill up before it leaves a stain.
Reviving the Colors: If you want to revive the colors of a carpet, you will need to wash it with a solution made of water and white vinegar. However, some carpets are sensitive to vinegar, and the company must determine the consistency of the carpet, to see if it can actually be washed with vinegar. Anyway, don't try this unless you are sure that the carpet can be washed with this substance.
You can buy special stain resistant carpets that can be useful for those areas that people frequent. You need to decide if the extra cost is worth it, or if having your carpets professionally cleaned every now and then would be as effective. You can also pay extra for water-resistant carpet, which is a good feature if you think there will be a lot of spilling on your carpet. Whatever it is that you need, think about what features will be best for your family's needs regarding your new carpet and you will likely find a carpet to suit your needs.
